Three siblings searching for the truth about their family are about to find more than they bargained for. . . .
When shy and reserved Maggie Ferringer is called for jury duty, she never expects to be kidnapped by an escaped convict. But when Cain Cannon, disguised as a prison guard, pulls a gun, she has no choice but to be taken hostage. Cain claims that he’s innocent of killing his girlfriend six years ago, and now he wants revenge on the people who put him behind bars.
Soon Maggie becomes more than just a hostage to Cain. As they slowly begin to share the secrets of their respective pasts, Maggie discovers that she wants to fight for Cain’s freedom - because he just might be the kind of man she can love.

"Lisa Gardner's work has the chills and thrills to excite, and the heart to draw you in." (Sandra Brown)
A better story and better narration. The Cain character is interesting but not fleshed out enough, and the Maggie character is just ridiculous.
The second in the series, since I already purchased it.
maybe, but not too soon.
the story could make an interesting stage play?
I love Lisa Gardner's previous books, and this has none of the suspense, terror, or well drawn characters her previous works have. The story is disappointingly straightforward, the Maggie character as well as her narration are terrible, and there are parts that I are just soft core porn in disguise. Very disappointing all around.
Lisa Gardner's mysteries are usually among my favorites, but the Family Secrets series does not meet her usual high standards. Maggie''s Man was apparently written during the early days of Gardner's career, when she had not yet found her proper voice. This book has far too much panting, moaning and underwear-shedding for my taste.
No - too embarrassing.
Give me more plot and fewer long, drawn-out sex scenes.
I really enjoyed this book. I've listened to several of Lisa Gardner's books, and this had a very different story line then most. She took this story full circle, and I really enjoyed the characters, the thought process the Writer had, and the way it ended.
I would give a book written solely by Lisa Gardner another chance. However, the characters in this book were so very disappointing that I would not waste my credits or money on another Lisa Gardner collaboration.
None, I would simply make them have more common sense. From the description I just knew I would love the heroine with her sweet innocence and the hero, a compassionate "bad boy." I was wrong. The heroine was silly, just silly. The hero was disappointingly spineless. Every time the heroine made an incredibly silly demand, request, plea, whatever, his reaction was almost, "what's a person to do?" For example, she had just promised to do what he asked, be cooperative, in exchange for him stopping to help a stranded couple, when she broke her promise. He said, "stay in the car," she immediately gets out of the car. Instead of reminding her, "hey, what happened to 'I'll be cooperative?" he basically mentally shook his head. Her actions lead to all kinds of bad repercussions. At this point, I had read enough of her silly, self-centered, I'll do whatever I want regardless of the impact on anyone else. I just wasn't interested in even finding out how our hero resolved the myriad of issues he was facing. Again, these characters were such a departure from what I have come to love in Lisa's books.
